Synopsis


Set after the events of the DragonBall Z television series, the first new Dragon Ball feature in nearly 20 years finds Beerus, the God of Destruction on a mission to conquer Goku. Meanwhile, with the future of their planet in jeopardy, the Z-fighters assemble to stop the dreaded Beerus. The only way to truly save humanity from certain destruction, however, is for Goku to realize his true potential as a Super Saiyan God. ~ Jason Buchanan

    Genre: Action, Comedy Length: 105 minutes, 85 for the Theatrical version. "Stunning animation and spellbinding action sequences highlight the first new Dragon Ball Z feature film in seventeen years! Beerus, the devastating God of Destruction, travels to Earth in search of an opponent who can match his brutal battle skills. Driven by visions of an all-powerful warrior known as the Super Saiyan God, Beerus threatens to destroy the planet unless a worthy challenger steps forward. Joined by an all-star cast of Dragon Ball characters, Goku must draw upon the power of his friends to unlock the strength of a Super Saiyan God - and stop Beerus's evil rampage!" New Dragon Ball Z? Don't mind if I do! I really should have gone to see it in the theaters back when they were screening it, though. Don't get near enough anime titles on the big screen. Battle of the Gods takes place after the end of the Z/GT series as Goku makes mention of his fusion with Vegeta. With the manga, it apparently occurs during a time-skip in chapter 517 #according to Wikipedia#. Don't really have to worry much about any spoilers here except for the ending which I'll avoid. I watched the uncut version so I can't comment on what was removed for the theatrical version. The story is pretty consistent with any shonen/action movie where a new forces comes to Earth, beats up the good guys, they power up, and then fight again. And in typical DBZ fashion, there's a lot of filler. It seemed like Akira Toriyama wanted to bring parts of all Dragon Ball series into play with this one as a bit of time is spent on Emperor Pilaf and his misfits since they're trying to steal the dragon balls again. Luckily we don't have to experience Yamcha trying to fight in this one... Battle of the Gods introduces a few things that I really liked as well as some that I wasn't as thrilled with. Being the first new film in 17 years, this one does make use of CG animation which is done pretty well. I don't think it was pulled off as well as they did it with the Berserk movies, but it moved smoothly and didn't detract from the fights. Also, after Goku got KO'd in just 2 shots at the beginning, Vegeta got some screen time and managed to put up a pretty awesome fight after seeing Bulma get knocked out. The movie doesn't end the way you'd initially expect, either! I was definitely happy with that as it leaves the door open to more movies. On the opposite side, I wish that they had stuck with the original version of "Cha-La Head-Cha-La" as the new one didn't feel quite as epic. Also, I enjoy some comedy, but it just felt like they abused it a bit too much as filler for the series. But! If a god of destruction comes to your neck of the woods, give him some pudding, sushi, and ice cream. They seem to love that stuff... Lastly, I can dig the red hair of the Super Saiyan God-mode, but skinny Goku just doesn't look right! Overall, I certainly enjoyed the film. I cried a little on the inside while watching Vegeta's bingo dance, though. Fantastic graphics, a phenomenal voice-acting job, great fights, and an entertaining story make it a must-own in my book. And despite what BBY's website says, you can probably find it in any store for the first week or two of release. My store doesn't have an anime section anymore but they got this one! Enjoy!

    You can't go wrong with DBZ. I like this one because it ignores what happens to DBZ GT and creates a better story line.

    As a DBZ fan it was nice to see all my favorites back. It was filled with humor and intense fight scenes. However certain parts felt forced and just a little to convenient. Also it was disappointing to see Veggeta, once again, reduced to a humor tactic. He has one scene where you got to see the power of the prince but it was overshadowed by the previous mentioned facts.
